This week the children have been learning about where bugs like to live. The children have then used this information to make the bug hotel. They have created different layers of rocks, sticks, logs, hay and leaves to attract different bugs. The children worked together to find a lot of the materials they needed in the forest. We can’t wait to see what bugs will move into our hotel!

A little bit of rain doesn’t stop us

The children have had a lovely morning in the forest. The rain didn’t stop them enjoying a game of pirate ship and exploring the forest. They found lots of acorns and worms and some took shelter in the different dens around the forest. When back in the classroom we enjoyed a nice cup of warm milk.

This week the children have been busy creating different things for pirates. They made some amazing creations out of junk modelling, from telescopes to pirate ships with swimming pools on, for the pirates to walk the plank. There were also some wonderful ships made in the construction area where the children spent ages adding different parts and perfecting their ships. We were unlucky with the weather this week so can all parents ensure that their child has a full set of waterproofs and welly boots in school at all times.

Winnie the Witch

We started this week by sharing a Winnie the Witch story. The children really enjoyed looking at the chalk pictures that were drawn in the front and the back of the book. This led onto the children creating their own pictures with chalks. Look out for their amazing pictures they have created.
